The idea of renovating a space is exciting, but not always in the budget. If a full renovation is not in your plan choose small, budget friendly choices that can easily transform your space and still have a big impact.
Here are some ideas to refresh your space while staying on budget!
This is an easy update and can totally transform a room. In my own home we have changed out three light fixtures and they’ve upgraded those rooms significantly. We replaced our 80’s chandelier in the dining room with a $60 DIY industrial light (similar to the one above). It tied together our other decor elements and really brought the room together. Unsure where to start? Think of making a small investment in a statement light fixture like the ones below.
Paint or Wallpaper
This is an easy update and something you can accomplish in a weekend. In my own home we have a lot of beige walls and there is no way we are going to paint our entire house, I’m exhausted even thinking about it. We have decided to add feature walls in a few rooms. Wallpaper out of budget? Take a note from the talented Lark and Linen who painted these stripes for her feature wall. Find some wallpaper inspiration below.
Makeover a Piece of Furniture
Do you have a piece of furniture that you love but it’s not working in your space whether it’s the color or placement? Moving or painting a piece of furniture can really change up your space. I love this ottoman above, it’s a DIY you could make using an old bean bag chair or ottoman, all you need is a blanket! Not into DIY’s, then check out some affordable ottomans below.
Add an accent piece
Pieces like large lamps or rugs or bright piece of art can add a nice dynamic to any room. Don’t have a lot to invest? Look at your local thrift store or Craigslist. There are always great finds on there. Plus there are so many fabulous new online stores. The Pivot Lamp above is from Article. The lamp is a simple addition but makes a huge statement. More statement pieces below.
Don’t be afraid to make a change
We aren’t tearing down walls here, the investment is minimal. If you don’t like the results you can always paint the wall or sell the piece of furniture. I know its not always easy to redecorate but don’t overwhelm yourself thinking you have to makeover the entire room! Adding a piece or taking one away can make a huge change.
In my home Mark didn’t want to change anything because he dreams of tearing down all the walls so he thought it was a waste of time. I convinced him to replace a few fixtures and a mirror in the bathroom (baby steps). His reaction, he couldn’t believe how those small changes made such an impact and he is loving our space. This way we live in a home we love until we are able to renovate. It’s win win.
